  1. Any tips on feeding a wire with a plug on it through the flexible conduit on the hatchback?

    Thanks. It is a coax cable from Blackvue so there isn’t a way to depin it. I ended up getting it through by being the tip of a coat hanger around the plug so there was no way it could slip off, then wrapping the whole thing in electrical tape so it wouldn’t snag on the other wires, then very...
  2. Any tips on feeding a wire with a plug on it through the flexible conduit on the hatchback?

    I’m trying to feed a read dash cam connection wire through the rubber flexible conduit deal that sits between the tailgate and the body of the car. Since it’s a special wire that already has a little plug on the end it seems rather difficult. Anybody have tips on this? I’m going to see if I can...
  3. Any trick to reinstall A pillar trim?

    No, there’s a slot that you can see where the front tab on the trim should slide into. My issue is that no matter how I like it up when I go to actually slide the trim into place that front tab slips over to the left (this is on the driver side) and away from the slot. So then the trim piece is...
  4. Any trick to reinstall A pillar trim?

    Yeah I keep trying to get the very front of the trim to slide into the slot first but it seems like no matter what I do the tab slips to the outside of the slot… so then once I get the whole pillar to snap into the right place everything is fine except the very tip isn’t flush against the dash...
  5. Any trick to reinstall A pillar trim?

    Is it just me or is it a pain to get the very front corner tab of the A pillar trim to click back into the slot? I keep getting the whole piece to snap into the right place but then I notice the front corner has slipped outside of the slot so there's a gap between the very tip of the trim piece...
  6. I need help installing a dashcam

    You'll want Low Profile Mini (LPM) add-a-circuit taps and fuses. If you plan to use "parking mode" you'll use two add-a-circuits, hooking one up to a constant fuse and one up to a switched fuse in the fuse box. This is a good item that should give you what you need...
  7. Any way to add oem XM radio to a sport?

    Just got my 2021 Sport and never even thought about it not having XM radio… thought that was pretty standard on all cars these days! Alas it doesn’t have it. Is there any easy way to add whatever OEM part is needed? I’m not sure what is different but I’m guessing that the same head unit and...
  8. Suggestions for discreet dash cams?

    Yeah I ended up ordering one of the Blackvues. Now just gotta figure out if I can fish the wire for the rear camera straight back over the headliner instead of going across the top of the windshield and down the side of the car.
  9. What did you do to your Civic today? (II)

    What's on your list? I just picked my SGP Sport Hatch up last week.
  10. Show me your aftermarket shift knob

    Can anybody recommend a good, heavy "larger ball" style shift knob without any markings on it. Preferably in a darker color like gun metal and whatever extra piece I need in order for the shift boot to sit properly? I tried the heavy Box 490 gram knob but it came with their logo on top rather...
  11. Triple beep?

    Weird. Seems kind of strange that it does it immediately when I close the doors or hatch. Like the instant the door is closed it beeps. So there’s no way I would have time to walk away. It’s really very similar to what I’ve seen in other brands when the key fob is left in the car. I also have...
  12. Triple beep?

    Actually now that I had a chance to drive the car some more it seems more like 8 really fast beeps. It just did it when I got out of the car and closed the driver door, then I walked to the back and opened and closed the hatch and it did it again when I closed the hatch. Keys are in my pocket...
  13. Triple beep?

    It seems like my car like to triple beep at me when I close the hatch sometimes. Anybody know what this means? The keys are in my pocket so it’s not like I’ve seen on some other cars where it beeps to let you know the keys are inside the car. I think the usual scenario is I get out. Close the...
  14. Suggestions for discreet dash cams?

    Curious what everybody is using for dash cams and how you have them setup. I’m hoping to get a very thin one without a screen or anything. Guessing that the best setup is to mount it high on the center of the windshield and run the wiring across the top under the headliner and then down the...
  15. Decided on a 2021 Civic Hatchback as my first new car. Unsure on Trim level.

    Slap on some winter tires and drive appropriately and you’ll be fine. I used to drive my S2000s in the northeast winters without issue.
  16. Factory Head unit with speaker and amp upgrade

    Did you try to just use the speaker adapters to see if it will work with the factory wiring without the amp in the mix?
  17. Best place for oem accessories?

    I’m wanting to get the oem all weather mats and maybe the rear cargo mat. Any recommendations for the best place to order those things? I’ve found a ton of dealers online that all seem to use the same basic website system with slightly different prices between them, but they all have very high...
  18. Factory Head unit with speaker and amp upgrade

    Following… I’m in the same situation but haven’t ordered any speakers yet. So did you replace all 8 speakers? I was considering just replacing the larger speakers with some good full range ones but am not sure if the oem setup has a crossover to remove the highs from the larger speaker. I would...
  19. Decided on a 2021 Civic Hatchback as my first new car. Unsure on Trim level.

    I just picked up a 2021 sport hatch 6MT… so that’s my vote.
  20. What would cause clutch disc, pressure plate, and flywheel to be replaced at 14k miles?

    Looking at a 2020 Si and the CarFax shows that the clutch disc, pressure plate, and the flywheel were all replaced at around 14k miles. Any ideas as to why that would be? Was there a recall or something?
